There does seem to be another level of "standard-ness" than this.
Specifically, it would involve the library being distributed with GHC
distributions and included in the documentation at
http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/. The base split is
great, but I hope that it doesn't mean the standard libraries (in this
sense) are being phased out, or that libraries or documentation will be made
harder for Haskell newcomers to find and use.
